United Way of Greater Augusta Forming Review Teams in order to Evaluate Grant Applications
Have you ever wanted to be part of the solution? United Way is looking for Citizens interested in volunteering to review funding applications.
Funds from United Way are used to build community capacity in supporting individuals and families with immediate needs and establishing a foundation for long-term change. Through these funds, United Way will invest in projects and programs that address the priority areas of Education, Income, and Health.
Citizen Investment Review Team members review funding applications received and participate in agency site visits. Citizen Investment Review Team members make funding recommendations to the United Way Board of Directors on the organizations they review and visit.
This is a great way to be part of community solutions. Interested individuals can register at www.unitedwayga.org by clicking on “upcoming events”. Each application will be reviewed for suitability and potential conflict of interest. Board members and Staff of organizations applying for funding this cycle will not be permitted to serve on review teams.
On March 9, 2016 we will be conducting a required training session for our Citizen Investment Review Team (CIRT.) CIRT members review funding applications and participate in non-profit agency site visits to make funding recommendations to the UWGA Board of Directors.
Members of the community are encouraged to participate.
We are offering 3 sessions to accomodate volunteer schedules:
8:30 am-10:00 am
11:00 am-12:30 pm
3:00 pm-4:30 pm
Snacks will be provided
Site visits will take place March 15th, you must be available on that day to be a Citizen Investment Review Team Volunteer.
Please note each applicant will be reviewed for suitability and conflict of interest. (board members and employees of organizations requesting funding are not eligible to participate)
